  1. is there anybody?

    I wanna use esigal as data feed and IB as execution platform

    but I don't know whether such a combination is a good one?

    i use realtick as my main quote source, IB as my main brokerage.
  3. I use both with no issues. Though I don't integrate the trading capability into eSignal (i.e. being able to click in eSignal to generate trades via IB).
  4. I have heard that the reason why IB is being faster is because they aggregate the ticks where E-signal shows every tick. Either could be advantage or disadvanrage depending on what you are trying to do.

    someone says IB data is faster than esignal

    does it cause a problem?
  5. I use DTN.IQfeed
